The workshop will build on a series of international workshops held in
Boulder, USA (2014), Reading, UK (2015) and Palisades, USA (2016). As in
previous years, the focus will be on environmental prediction in the
polar regions on a wide range of timescales, thereby helping to build a
"seamless" polar prediction community. Sea ice will again play a central
role, with one desired outcome being the compilation of recommendations
for the 2017 Sea Ice Outlook season. However, the workshop also aims to
stimulate discussion on other interesting predictands of the polar
weather and climate system.
Details will be announced in due course.
